I am not even sure I buy the 'look into her soul' presentation for JJ anyhooo...not to take away from the posters above in their artful descriptions of interior pain, etc., but in the many shows I watched of JJ (never live), I viewed her more in a Pig-esque fashion--having a lot of fun as a crude, rude, substance and relationship abusing woman of the 60s....I didn't see much of a hardened in pain kind of soul as much as a fun loving rapper out to shock you...and give you a good time.

Agree about the subtle versions on this theme being better.

Hmm... balls-out good time blues belter mistaken for woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown you feel? And perhaps rightly.

That's it. Not to say that she didn't have serious 'issues' as we now refer to it, but often she seems to be having too much fun on stage, getting wasted, playing with the boys nearby, etc., etc.

For true earth-shattering pain nothing could hold a candle to Alfalfa (Little Rascals) belting out "It Hurts Me Too".
